Filling in the Blanks Holiday Backpack Program provides each child in our program with a new backpack.
Organize a Backpack Drive
The Holiday Backpack program provides children in our weekend meal program with a new full size backpack during the holiday season.
Having a backpack is essential for transporting food home for the weekends. Every year during the holidays we fill these new backpacks with pancake mix and syrup, a new book, a new game, dental kits and many other needed items.
We organize and collect new items for the backpacks year round.
Contact us if you are interested in holding a drive.
You can give your time! Filling in the Blanks is looking for volunteers to organize drives for backpacks and specific needed items.

The sturdy backpacks will not only provide a gift to the child but are a valuable means of transportation for their critical food packages.
